January 2023 Training Update

GENERAL:

GOING GREEN

In the future, students need to bring a Thumb Drive of 64G or larger to class to download the class information. Instead of wasting money/time and resources on DVD’s and cases, I will have a multi-port USB attached to the classroom or shop computer that allows students to do a quick transfer to their USB.



THE CSAT WAY ON FACEBOOK AND PATREON

We continue to work on new video content for both the Patreon Operator and Patreon Instructor. As of 1 Jan 2022, we had 170 videos on the site.


We wanted to stock the pond so to speak for the first year. We will slow a bit in adding content as some of the videos will take more time and resources to develop. One will be a well-rounded gym workout series targeting strength and endurance without injury.


I want to add more instructor content and that will require extra live bodies to work with in shooting those videos. I look forward to the challenges.


You can visit “The CSAT Way” on FaceBook for video updates.



LAST YEAR-2022


2022 is gone.


It should have been a wakeup call for all Americans about the path we are on.


  • Reckless Spending

  • No coherent Foreign Policy

  • Immigration

  • Rise of Crime

  • Child Grooming/Drag Shows in schools

  • Education indoctrination

  • Hunter’s Laptop

  • Epstein

  • COVID


With the revelation of the “Twitter Files” and the overreach of government spying and political bias, Americans need to focus on what is important and recenter our lives.


Our government should be limited and a referee of sorts. They should be there to keep a level playing field and protect all Americans who work their asses off to make ends meet and who are trying to raise a family in these morally corrupt times.


Instead, our political system has become an ego driven, totalitarian leaning, get rich path instead of service to the people.


As an AMERICAN, you should focus on being independent, strong and a family leader and example your children should want to follow. You should be able to say what is right and wrong and articulate what you believe in.


You should have the skills and tools to stand up to evil. This is why the 2nd Amendment was written into the constitution (Bill of Rights), which were limitations to the government's power.


It is easier to conquer a people who comply. What history tends to forget is that we drained the worlds countries of many individuals who were strong, independent and wanted a better life for themselves, their families and future generations. These patriot migrants were sick of totalitarian governments.


This DNA or spirit is still there in our country. I see it in the working classes of people who believe in a life ethic, work ethic and family ethic.


It will be interesting to see if people choose comfort over liberty.



LE CORNER


This was pulled from our FB Page


FB Response: What do you have for the other 90%


My Response: Reflect on Uvalde

The CSAT Way with the ZINGER! on Friday!


The CSAT Way Sir, I wish someone could do an exhaustive investigation of Uvalde. Just so hard to believe it all went down as it supposedly did. Strange to me and I’m WAY far from even being a tactical anything. Gotta be a piece missing


Again, the above response was pulled from our FB page and in my mind, it is pretty simple.

It is not about a fancy new technique with a pistol high next to your head or a rifle off your shoulder like a new SF trend that is actually old.

It is not about your beard or your ink.

It is not about male, female, LGBT, White, Black, Brown or Red.

It is not about the RDS on your pistol.

It is about mindset/meat and potato training and a little bit of “I value your life as much or more than mine and I am willing to train to prove it.”


Further, it is simply taking your pistol or rifle in your hand, turning a doorknob as a single officer, two-person or team element and killing a bad person who is killing kids. Too many officers these days cannot do this simple task. But they can run around with RDS sights on everything with a false sense of confidence in their abilities. Chain of Commands are lazy/ignorant and all too happy to throw equipment at a training problem.


I don’t care about the 90%.


We have a generation that wants to put on a uniform or carry a gun to validate their personal inadequacies. They have been sold that excellence is easy. Chain of Commands reinforce this belief. Flashy trainers sell this as well.


I care about the 10% who will push forward and lead others to do the same.


It is about officers and people who prioritize and go the distance.

As for Uvalde and Texas, it happened on your watch. What are you going to do about it?
